In this 3-week course, students will explore making functional and decorative ceramics using coil, pinch, and slab hand building methods. They’ll learn about the stages that clay goes through – from wet, to leather-hard, to bone-dry and about the hand-tools used for trimming, shaping and creating texture on pots. After pieces are bisque fired students will have a variety of glazes to decorate their creations. All glazes are food safe. Class fee includes clay (up to 12.5 lbs wet weight), glaze, tools, and all firings.
Class meets once per week, Wednesdays Nov. 30, Dec. 7 and 14. Final glazed pieces available by December 24.
2 sessions for project construction, 1 for glazing
Limited youth scholarships available.
